Camping and Boondocking on our Public Lands

For me, this was exciting news, as with all my years hiking in the wild, stalking and tracking wildlife, and attempting to spot signs of wildlife presence, spotting a mountain lion in the wild has remained elusive. My wife, Lynn, came across two lions while running in the Coronado National Forest in Southeastern Arizona barely a quarter mile from our campsite, but from the time I heard her scream until I got to her they had disappeared into the brushy hillside – and I didn’t see them (since her penetrating scream likely sent them scurrying to safety).

About smokeycamping

Well let's see have lived in NY for my whole life, have always loved the outdoors (as long as it is warm out) have always hated the cold, and like a dummy have stayed in NY. But now with my second try my wife, we have been camping now for well over 25 yrs. We currently own a 2010 Cedar creek silverback 35TS and can not wait to get out on the highways and see this great country we all call home. Hope to see every National park before my medical issue becomes too bad to travel. I love my African gray parrot (she is my baby) and have two dogs at the time brother and sister mutts, but love them all the same. Have always been a big Nascar fan, love computers (have a number of certificates to build and work on them) am trying to learn photography, enjoy light hiking, being with good friends and folks. country music, pop music and just being outdoors. So I hope someday to meet some of the great people who like what I like and post out there in some great campground somewhere in the country, till then I will keep posting and I hope you keep liking.
